Until 7th February - Sadler's Wells Theatre, London

William Adams, known in Japanese as Anjin, was an English maritime pilot who is believed to be the first Englishman to ever reach Japan.

Washed ashore on a strange and exotic land, Anjin soon finds himself as the trusted adviser to the powerful Shogun Tokugawa, drawn to the heart of a dangerous clash of cultures and struggle for power, whilst war threatens to erupt all around.

An epic and compelling tale of friendship, honour, love and sacrifice, this beautifully staged new production stars the celebrated Japanese actor Masachika Ichimura alongside Stephen Boxer, Yuki Furukawa and an international cast direct from Japan and the UK.


Performed in English and Japanese with subtitles in both languages.
